♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: welcome back, everybody. we are so honored to welcome our next two guests back to the show. they are musicians, artists and activists as well as mother and son. ladies and gentlemen, yoko ono and sean lennon. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: welcome. welcome back to the show, you guys. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. >> jimmy: you've both been on the show as musical guests. but now you're here talking together, something very special. >> that was good, though.
>> jimmy: that was good. you coming out and dancing. >> yeah right. >> jimmy: very cute. yeah. yeah. >> we rehearsed that a lot, actually. >> jimmy: you did. a lot of rehearsal backstage. is it fun going out together, mother and son? is this the first talk show you have done together? >> actually, it is the first couch we have done together, isn't it? >> yeah, exactly. >> besides the one in your kitchen where we watch jimmy every night. >> jimmy: yeah. [ laughter ] just so many things to get to. so many things to talk about. i want to know the story behind this book that came out this year. "an invisible flower." >> "an invisible flower." >> jimmy: yeah. it's a beautiful book, a beautiful story. sean, you found this? >> kind of. i mean, it was hard to find because it's invisible. [ laughter ] but i was looking through my mother's closet, where she has a good archive. she has a lot of stuff. actually, she made it in the '50s, and it turned out that she had written this little story with drawings that was about a character named john. which was really surprising because she hadn't met or even heard of my dad at the time. >> no. >> so i thought, "can we publish this?" and i have a small -- chimera publishing.
it's called chimera libraries, like my book company. >> it's a big one now. >> i like to go into dying industries like music and books. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah, you have to get it out there. >> i'm an expert on all things. i'm going to start latin next. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: good for you. that's so smart of you. >> so that's why the book is kind of miraculous in that way. >> jimmy: that's interesting, though. you talked about john, a character -- the only character i can figure -- >> i didn't know anybody named john then. so he said, "oh, that's my daddy." well, daddy was not there yet. so, what happened was, after i found out that i made the story in 1952, and i looked at -- well, do you have it? >> jimmy: yeah, this here, yeah. >> okay. so this is what john did in 1952. on february 18th -- >> that looks uncannily like the hippie version of yoko. when you had longer hair. >> yeah yeah. [ laughter ] >> and rode horses too. she used to believe in that. when we were really green in the '60s, we only rode horses. and we weren't into gas and all
that, you know? [ laughter ] >> yeah. we didn't have bicycles. >> jimmy: you could bring that back. yoko, you should ride horseback all over new york city. >> the energy crisis is getting us back to donkeys. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: that's very smart. >> you know what i'm saying? >> the thing is, this was my birthday, february 18th. >> jimmy: is that right? >> the date says right there. it's in walls and bridges. the solo album, my dad did not -- politely left a note. >> jimmy: february 18th. let me just show the camera here. john wrote this in 1952? >> yeah. there's only one february 18th in the year. >> jimmy: absolutely, yes. [ laughter ] thank you. >> well, most days, isn't it? >> jimmy: now that has been settled. [ laughter ] you guys do so much stuff. another good thing you're doing is the imagine peace tower. just look at this picture. it's not fake. that's what it looks like. this is in iceland? >> yes. >> jimmy: i mean, this beam just shoots up in the sky like a light saber. and it's just awesome, like it goes into space. >> i know, it's going into space. the thing is, all this is
doing -- how tall is it going to be? i said, "well, you know, i hope it's going to be tall as my apartment which was seven floors." but when it happened, it just went way up like that. and it made a curve. like, i didn't know there was a curve in the sky. >> jimmy: yeah. >> it's beautiful. >> the earth is round. they didn't know that in the '60s. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: tonight's show is blowing my mind. [ cheers and applause ] thank you, sean. i did not know that, yes. okay. you guys have started a thing, a website. tonight we're going to talk about fracking. >> you know, i'm not an activist inherently. >> you're an activist now. >> i'm more like an in-activist. i'm an expert in couches and beds. [ laughter ] but what happened -- when the company showed up to, you know, from where you're from in upstate new york, it sort of like, propelled us. it was like a fire under the tush and we suddenly felt like we had to do something. so we put together just for this show, actually, just in the last two weeks, this coalition called
"artists against fracking." the website is on right now. it just started at 9:00 p.m. tonight. and we've got 120 artists. i don't know if i should mention them all, but there's, you know, mgmt and beck and then we've got leonardo dicaprio and joseph gordon-levitt, who's -- >> lady gaga. >> -- a friend. and we've got lady gaga. >> jimmy: lady gaga. [ laughter ] >> yeah. >> and people like david geffen. >> jimmy: artistsagainstfracking.com. >> right. so we put the site together. you can go there, and if you want to get to much more serious links like josh fox's link and frac-action, these people that are actually activists and not in-activists like me. then you can -- it's a porthole. >> you're doing a very good job. >> thank you. >> with me. [ laughter ] >> she's my mom. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: well, you know you guys, i heard that you wrote a protest song. >> we did. >> jimmy: about fracking.
i would love to hear it. >> just for you, we wrote it. are you ready? >> you know, i won't to do it unless it's for the cause. and i will do it. >> jimmy: thank you. >> can i have a sip of your water? >> jimmy: thank you for doing this. you go over there and i'll give you a really good intro, okay? >> that'll be great. >> jimmy: go over there. >> are you ready? >> i'm ready. thank you. >> jimmy: you guys, this is very exciting. here to perform their new protest song about fracking, give it up for yoko ono and sean lennon, everybody.
